Last fall, Us Weekly got the ball rolling with an exclusive report that Melissa Rivers was set to inherit over $100 million from her mom: $75 million in cash, together with an Upper East Side condo valued at $35 million. Today on The Howard Stern Show, Melissa laughed off the widely circulated $100-million-plus amount, which ballooned in many subsequent reports to $150 million:
“So, I read this online and I call my business manager and go, ‘Do I have that kind of money?!’ He’s like, ‘No, I wish…’ And hung up on me.”
Howard asked her again, to confirm, which Rivers did. During this morning’s SiriusXM convo, Rivers also gave Howard a rare and cool gift – one that only Jimmy Fallon has also received, for bringing Joan back to The Tonight Show on the 49th anniversary of her first appearance: a typed joke card from mom’s personal collection.
Stern’s card reads: “VAGINA – The only thing my vagina is good for these days is to suction me to the ground during an earthquake.”
